After a very emotional year, 2 surgeries, 4 1/2 months in casts, and gaining ALL of my weight back, how do I get the motivation to start again?
I AM: walking, getting enough sleep, trying to eat right including fruits and vegetables, logging on every day
I AM NOT: watching the amount I eat, watching the amount of soft drinks I consume, cutting out the "fast food" drive thrus, drinking enough water, doing cardio exercises
But, the point is, I know what I NEED to do and not do but, I just don't have the motivation to care any more! I have NO emotional support with dear hubby (whom I call the saboteur). Today I actually went into the refrigerator and threw out ALLLLL of the fast food leftovers (even the Chinese, yes, I said I threw out the Chinese!!!) This was a HUGE step for me!!
I ordered the chinese (because they deliver) and thought that it would be a healthy change this weekend when the grandkids were here rather than the same old pizza and mcdonald's that they always beg for. At least it had vegetables....but, geezzzz, the sodium about killed me! I am as blown up as a hot air balloon! Stop laughing....yeah, the picture it represents is funny, though!
I guess I am just venting and looking for excuses when I really just need to get off of my butt and DO something!! Maybe now that the worst is behind me (no pun intended there), my daughter's visit is over, the grandkids don't come back for another 2 weeks, I can get back to eating right...???!!!??? Well, here's to good intentions....
Stay tuned for the next episode of "Did I?".......
